Girona is very well connected by public transport to Barcelona, you can go, or by train from Sants station, with frequencies every half hour or an hour, depending on the time zone of the day, or by bus from North Station bus, in both cases, the time it will take to get there will be one hour and a half or one hour forty-five minutes or so, unless, you want to try the high-speed train, known as AVE and it only takes forty minutes to arrive.
You can go back in the day, because as we have already mentioned, the town is small, and walk the historic streets and its most emblematic places can be done perfectly in one day, but if you want to discover it thoroughly you have to spend a weekend week; You find yourself accommodation options in the city from 65 € and there is a wide and varied range. We will not discover you everything offered by this city, because we could write a book, I will propose a little walk that encourage you to visit.
We will tell you that Girona is a city that crosses the river Onyar and the stone bridge over this river will be the beginning of the walk, because from this bridge begin the “Ramblas” in Gerona, full of terraces and cafes with lots of atmosphere, walk until the French Rambla and reach the smallest square in the world, “La Plaza del Raïms”. Walk through the old town touring the Plaça del Vi, Carrer de les Ferreries Velles, Carrer dels Mercaders, they are really nice and pedestrian streets. From there we propose to go to the stairs of the church of Sant Martí, a beautiful place that is full of color and life during outdoor exposure of Girona “Temps de Flors”; It opens to the public and stairs become a large floral carpet, as virtually all city streets. “Temps de Flors” is held every year during the month of May and you will want to see how the whole city becomes a color decorated with flowers everywhere.
From there we headed to the Jewish quarter, one of the best preserved in the West; when the city expanded, its inhabitants preferred to live in new homes around the old town and the houses were practically empty and there the Jews settled. And from here down the street Força arrived at the Cathedral of Girona, with a grand staircase just get up, without a stop, one who is fit, so, here we leave you resting or going to discover the great temple, although you have to know that the entrance fee is paid.We hope we have managed to arouse your desire to visit and continue walking through this city, which also taste the Catalan cuisine is a real treat for anyone.
